Another thing Harold “Doomsday” Camping missed: Old Testament punishment prescribed for false prophets was harsh.

Deuteronomy 18:20-22

But the prophet, who being corrupted with pride, shall speak in my name things that I did not command him to say, or in the name of strange gods, shall be slain.

And if in silent thought thou answer: How shall I know the word that the Lord hath not spoken?

Thou shalt have this sign: Whatsoever that same prophet foretelleth in the name of the Lord, and it cometh not to pass: that thing the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath forged it by the pride of his mind: and therefore thou shalt not fear (heed) him.

Editor’s note: I wonder why all these learned, Bible believing scripture “scholars” … and their disciples … who deem themselves qualified even to predict the mysterious “end of days” … seem to be totally oblivious to the above scripture passage?

I M P O R T A N T: The entirety of the old law was fulfilled and set aside by Jesus Christ, in favor of the all new and better covenant that he gave to us, in his own blood … so there is now no extant law (of God or of man) that currently prescribes death for false prophets.

The prudential decision to totally disregard such false prophets however, is still a sound one.

Many of us had a lot of fun following the exploits of Harold Camping this past weekend … but there should now be absolutely no doubt that Camping is a victim of “the pride of his mind” … and people of faith should rightly be totally unconcerned with anything he might have to say.
